Dark Dorinda Medley: Is She the New Villain of RHONY?

Dorinda Medley is the first to admit that she has taken on a different tone, to the point where fans have described her as “dark” this season.

Is the blowback at her from fans going to turn her into the show’s new villain?

Andy Cohen’s remote interview with Entertainment Tonight included lots of juicy tidbits about Real Housewives.

In particular, he delved into plans regarding RHOC footage that was filmed before the pandemic forced everyone into lockdown.

But as you can see here, in the video included with this article, they then move on to RHONY and to Dorinda Medley in particular.

Does she really hate Tinsley Mortimer as much as it appears?

In a word? No.

According to Andy Cohen, Dorinda was “not in a great place this season.”

As we previously reported, Dorinda was grappling with a lot of different issues and stressors as this filmed.

“She’s got a lot of anger,” Andy acknowledges.

“I think on the show it just looks like she’s so mad at Tinsley,” Andy assesses.

“But,” he continues, “when you take a more global view of what she’s got going on in her life.”

“I think you’ll see that she’s got more going on that she’s upset about,” Andy states.

But he’s not going to reveal whether or not this season includes Dorinda’s redemption arc or if that will be put on hold for the Reunion or next season.

Speaking of Reunions, they talk about the The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Special.

Naturally, the ladies dialed in via a livestream, though one person in particular did not stay for the entire Reunion.

NeNe Leakes ghosted for part of the Reunion taping, and that’s a little surprising when you think about it.

“She had such a great second half of the season,” Andy notes. “She made amends with everybody.”

How often can anyone say that about NeNe, really?

Andy also notes that NeNe has a song out.

Which should give her extra incentive to participate in all of the stuff that she seems to think that she’s too good for.

But the stars who actually participated the whole time had some iconic moments of their own.

Kandi Burruss, of course, said “I’m embedded in your motherf–king brain.”

That’s one hell of an iconic line.

And then, of course, came what Porsha Williams said to Eva Marcille about her breasts.

“Girl, them t–ties are aged hens! They’re social distancing!” she announced, adding: “Don’t come for me!”

That is one hell of a zinger, and Porsha knows it, which is why she immediately posed and smiled with satisfaction.

That’s also a deeply topical line to utter.

This brings us to the next topic, because in Andy’s eyes, the RHOA was more than just a success despite the pandemic.

He thinks that it perfectly encapsulates the moment as the stars express themselves from lockdown.

It’s great that the ladies can still bring the drama while working from home, but it’s no real surprise.

In the meantime, even though fans had worries that Bravo will be out of Housewives after RHONY and RHOBH run their course, we’re in luck.

Andy says that season one of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City had wrapped before the pandemic forced everyone into lockdown.

As for when viewers can expect to see it for themselves, he says to “watch this space.” In other words, he’ll let us know!

The Real Housewives of Orange County: Scrapping What Was Filmed Pre-Quarantine?

Even though the stars of The Real Housewives of Orange County seem to think that social distancing is just for poor people, Bravo is taking it seriously.

How is that disrupting and delaying production? And is Bravo really planning to throw out the first half of RHOC to start fresh post-quarantine?

As you can see in the video that we have included with this post, Andy Cohen did a remote interview with Nischelle Turner for Entertainment Tonight.

First up, she asks about footage of Denise Richards flipping out at Kyle Richards that was shown in the teaser but not in the actual episode.

That, Andy explains, will be aired when the time is right — when Denise announced to Bravo that she was unwilling to film.

It will, he confirms, play in at least one flashback as the season continues.

Speaking of Denise, Andy says that “the Brandi Glanville of it all” comes up in Episode 10, so we’re about halfway to that point.

Andy notes that ratings are up this season because, well, it’s a genuinely great season and even before we hit Denise’s scandal, it’s captivating.

He mentions that viewers can expect a lot of episodes from Beverly Hills.

This ties nicely into the next set of questions: how is the pandemic really impacting production across the franchise?

The Real Housewives of Dallas was just about to begin filming, Andy recalls.

And The Real Housewives of New Jersey had barely begun to film this season before they were forced to stop and enter lockdown.

“There’s kind of been a pause,” Andy characterizes.

And as for The Real Housewives of Orange County, he reveals, the ladies were “almost” in the middle of their season when the pandemic hit.

Andy acknowledges that the ladies of the OC have been “shooting some stuff themselves.”

We assume that he means more than just their very controversial mask-wearing trip that violated social distancing rules.

Andy admits that he and the rest of Bravo are anxious to resume filming.

For now, he says, the need to wait and watch to see when it is safe to do so for the Housewives and for the production crew.

Nischelle then asks a question that has been on our minds, too — are they going to ditch pre-quarantine footage now that the world has changed?

After all, these seasons run on storylines. It’s hard to imagine anyone’s arc from March 5 still being relevant after months of lockdown.

“We have great stuff shot,” Andy reveals. “I wouldn’t want to lose anything.”

“You know,” he continues, “what we shot are the building blocks of where the next season will go.”

Nischelle then also asks about The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, a new spinoff that we have all been eagerly anticipating.

It was announced in November, at BravoCon.

Andy reveals — to our delight and quite frankly to our relief — that their first season “was wrapped” before the pandemic shut things down.

As for when we can all look forward to watching Salt Lake, Andy teases: “Watch this space.” Meaning that he will let the world know.
